Engineers, architects and builders, today, as they have been for millennia, are masters of thinking up creative solutions that are born out of complex situations. Yes, most of the greatest structures ever to be built have stood the test of time – but one thing the great thinkers of Antiquity didn’t have to contend with were airplanes. One of the most useless things there is, is an airplane without an airport! Surely, as people – regarding commercial air travel, we are more concerned with the runway than the air we travel through – well perhaps the plane is our number one priority, with a smooth runway a close 2nd.
When the challenge is the building of an airport in Australia, on relatively flat ground, solutions are by no means simple, but after all the bureaucracy is cut through, our runways can be paved, and terminals constructed efficiently – especially when using Danterr products! But when landscapes are mountainous and airports need to be constructed close to cities of millions of people, solutions often become much more complicated. With a lack of building space, imagination can be unleashed, and engineers’ ingenuity often shines through to leave us in awe.
